A seasoned professional with almost two decades in the industry, Mukul, once a fashion designer, continuously unveils new facets of his talent each passing year. Effortlessly donning multiple hats, he transcends the label of a mere businessman, evolving into a visionary fashion editor, a creative powerhouse shaping design, a meticulous stylist weaving sartorial narratives, and a strategic mind sought after as a creative consultant.

When asked about juggling these myriad roles, Mukul smirks and responds, “I believe this kaleidoscopic diversity reflects my soul; it’s how I envision living my most authentic life. I revel in immersing myself in these diverse pursuits, and I’m blessed the universe has consistently allowed me to fulfill each role to the heights I desire.”

Reflecting on his serendipitous journey into fashion, Mukul states with elan, “I didn’t choose fashion; it was fashion that chose me and pulled me into its irresistible orbit.” What began as a humble foray into fashion design took an extraordinary trajectory, catapulting Mukul into a revered name among the crème de la crème of Dhaka’s fashion elite.

Tracing Bangladesh’s exhilaratingly evolving fashion landscape, Mukul reflects, “Fashion in Bangladesh has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis, with every industry player contributing immensely. From the timeless grace of sarees to the elegant salwar kameez and the meteoric rise of Western dresses, our ingenious designers have adeptly adapted to burgeoning demands, infusing their creative prowess to enrich the market with timeless collections.” He encapsulates the spirit of the last 52 years in Bangladesh’s fashion scene, acknowledging the enduring allure of desi motifs, fabrics, and craftsmanship, while recognizing the monumental influence of the global consumer market that propelled the nation toward embracing international trends, notably the rising wave of street fashion led by retail brands.

Adapting to this whirlwind of changes, Mukul reveals his strategy: “Knowledge is the key that unlocks every door, and diligent research is the tool that expands that knowledge. Staying ahead of the curve is no easy feat. I’ve always believed in daring to surpass my previous limits, and putting in tremendous effort without compromise. I vehemently assert that quality remains non-negotiable. If upholding excellence means losing a job or a friend, I will stand firmly by what’s right. Remaining true to my craft is my greatest strength.”

All models and fashion brands who’ve collaborated with Mukul can attest to one thing – “I’m no sweet talker. I’m here solely to deliver and conquer. That’s the mindset I bring to my work every single day,” asserts Mukul with unapologetic candor and confidence. Reflecting on his experience, he acknowledges the creative freedom granted by many brands that allowed him to fully manifest their visions into reality. After a yearlong journey that has exponentially enriched his confidence, Mukul proudly declares his straightforward, no-nonsense approach.

Expressing gratitude for his role as a stylist and choreographer, Mukul credits the seamless collaboration with models and makeup artists: “Creative processes are always arduous, and in that journey, if sync is lacking, the output is doomed to be dismal. I’m grateful that all the luminaries I’ve worked with, on the ramp or during photoshoots, never hesitated to fully engage in that creative process.” He acknowledges their vital support and participation in fueling his continued success.

Addressing the next generation of models, Mukul, Fashion Editor of MW magazine, advocates for bolder global aspirations: “Our consumers are traversing the globe now more than ever before. Our models must absorb that spirit and strive to blaze new trails on the international stage,” he urges, emphasizing the need for institutionalized pathways to help models more effectively realize their global ambitions.

Reflecting on his journey, Mukul, the uber fashionisto, affirms, “The one attire that will never go out of fashion for me is my bravado, my self-confidence. It has armored me against bullies and threats; I will continue wearing it proudly.” Concluding on a reflective note, he states, “Fashion has given me so much, and I’ve tried my utmost to reciprocate those gifts.” With numerous triumphs already under his belt, Mukul anticipates even greater heights ahead, remaining unflinchingly committed to pushing boundaries as he moves forward.
